Flex Credit Courses are identical to our Graduate Credit Courses in format, content, and evaluation but with two distinct differences - cost and documentation.

Many teachers don’t need a university transcript when updating their teaching credentials. Flex Credit courses provide you with a letter of completion (including hours for work completed), which is often the requirement for relicensing or recertification at a budget-friendly price.

Determine which Course Type is right for you.

Let us explain the differences.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. If the course is still offered and you are within six months of your term end date, you may be able to “upgrade” your course to obtain graduate-level continuing education credit.

Contact the Teaching Channel support team. We’ll help you select your university partner – then you will pay the difference in price. We will send your grade to your university and you will be able to request a transcript typically within 7-10 days. There are no discounts available for this credit upgrade.

A grade will not be included on your Teaching Channel letter of completion. However, your work will be evaluated with the same thoroughness as a for-credit course.

If you upgrade your Flex Credit course to a CE graduate credit course, your grade will be sent to the university partner you select.

Currently, we offer a Flex Credit option on our most popular courses. Additional courses may be added throughout the year.

Our Flex Credit offerings are heavily discounted. No additional discounts or promo codes are available.

A university transcript will show grades and courses that have been taken, while a letter of completion confirms that hours have been earned. Each university has unique elements included in its transcript.
